    Hey

    I am currently creating a social exchange site and I know there are a lot knocking about on the web. What would be the best way I could create attention and get users to sign up? It does look/act differently in a nice way from others I have seen but I don't think this is enough to attract new users?

    Any help is highly appreciated! :)

    I have 2 that I am going to be listing on flippa in a few days.... never had time to do much with them. One of them has about 1,000 users (earnmorefollowers.com and iliketraffic.com)

    GiftGuru - how did you promote them in first place to get up to 1,000 users? I mean I have plenty of time, college student and that, to update, keep in touch with users, etc. The only thing I think I'll struggle with is getting that initial 100 or so members

    I had hired some micro workers in the beginning... paid them $.10 to join... many of them then used the service. Spent about $100 on it for nearly 1000 sign ups

    Never even thought about micro workers! Thanks a lot!

    Still open to other suggestions from others too :)

    Well, the micro workers were the best to get it off the ground as 80%+ of all users that use traffic exchange sites are from these areas

    Hey Giftguru, would you mind leading me where to find a social media exchange script. I am looking for a one for long time yet couldn't find any.

    Thanks in advance.
